    If your going for best overall for trying to win, I would say number 5.
    guessing you like it how it is but just some thoughts
    - drop the termi armor and stormbolter from the libby, and give him a CC weapon or bolt pistol
    - drop the drop pod and smoke from the dread
    - drop sacred incense, auspex and targeter from the grey knights
    - drop tank hunters from the tactical squads
    - add brother-captain /w psycannon

    you should have enought points for this although I had to guess for the price of the SM stuff since I cant find that codex. at 1000 points you dont really need tank hunters on units plus it is kind of a waste on tactical squads anyways since you only get 1 lascannon.

    Hey, just a quick note: recheck the wargear entry for sacred incense. It's got a little "2" next to it, which means that it's only valid for Inquisitors, Inquisitor Lords, and Grey Knight Heroes. So, you can't take em on Justicars.

    Sorry =(

    *Edit*
    Also, I liked the second list. Good amount of both anti-troop and anti-tank with the lascannons, good number of GK's, and the Russ. It looks like it could make a really good shooty army, but you've got the Armoured Fist squads for any speedy objective claiming needs if necessary.

    All the lists are pretty interesting, actually. The only one that would have a truly tough time as an "all-comers" list would be #1, but as an anti-infantry list, it's probably the best one of the bunch. Do you have the models to play them all?
    ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

    I had to pick #5, but I also liked #2, and would have picked it if you could've put a few more PAGK's in it.

    In 1000pts lots of PAGK go really good with 10 Seraphim, too bad you don't have those!!

    Yah, i had something like that earlier, but i figured i wanted to use a drop pod. sacred incense was a points filler.
    tank hunters is necessary imo, because it really hurts tank heavy armies. it's like kicking them between the legs morally.
    brother-captain /w psycannon is not uber in this list, the librarion pretty much fills his spot.

    thanks for the 'pretty interesting' comment! for each list, i was trying to go for something not many people use, or that has not really been thought up but could still generally work.

    yah, i saw a similar list to #1 in the army list forum, where he talks about just killing the troops and avoiding the tanks he cant kill, and i thought that was kinda cool idea, not amazingly hot, but still, i liked it so i put it in here.

    I dont have the models to play them all, only #1, #4, and #5 i have enough models to play. I have the guard for #2 but not the tanks yet.

    Yah, #5 is a list that i most notably liked also, but not more than any of the other lists. I just like that it has a really high success rate with taking down enemy armour. Also, list 2 at first i was really starting to like, then i realized i cant have as many PAGK as i wanted, so it didnt become my favorite list, but i still kinda liked it.

    i agree that Seraphim are godly. but i am not a HUGE sisters fan, imo, if faith wasnt around, they would only have one good unit, and that is the Seraphim. but that is just personal preference, and i rarely see any of the models that i like visually. im just weird like that. Also my bro used to play sisters, so i dont want to be like him.


    anyways, im surprised there are no comments on the other lists, for example, no one commented on #3 list. It is the most messed up of the bunch i would assume.

    So none of these really seem very balanced (except no.5), but if I was going to choose one, i'd play no.3 deepstriking greyknights on first turn is pretty badass and with teleport homers standard on the bikes.. !!!! All pretty darn cool. AND THEY get a scout move... crazy.

    i know! lol

    however, they dont get a first turn deepstrike unless i take the Dark Angles Dude who has terminator armour as my main HQ.

    other problems with this list include:
    -The bikers dont have the expert riders ability
    -Not enough models
    -Not enough anti-armour

    those three reasons were enough not to make it my favourite list, but not enough to make me rule it out. lol

    one thing im really starting to fall in love about this list, the more i look at it, the more the 14 all sided armour Land Speeder is really cool!

    I'll go with the Silent Requiem list aka list 6. I think people are going to have a huge headache trying to kill 2 Land Raiders in 1000 points. Also the Land Raiders give you the speed you need to get into CC quickly need be against some armies.

    2 landraiders in 1k, you dont see that very often...
    my main problem with it is the utter lack of models, i do appreciate the out of the ordinary approach though. to make it more practical you could try dropping one LR/squad, bulking up your other GK squad, adding some stormtroopers in a rhino and maybe an armoured fists squad. it would be a tight points squeze but i think you could do it. also, maybe you should do crusaders instead of normal land raiders. you get more guns and they have a cooler name.

    then again, the look on an opponent's face when your deployment consists of 2 max armoured tanks would be priceless :shifty:

    but personaly, my favorite list is number 2. its got lots of shooty goodness. i just worry about your PAGK if they try to footslog up the field when they are the only infantry in the list. they will atract a buttload of small arms fire. maybe switch out an armourd fist squad for a good old fashioned imp guard platoon?

    ug im sorry, i just completely reworked two of your lists. just ideas though. its hard to find a list that can cover all your bases in such a specialised army, but i think one of these will do fine.
